So, I open the fridge and what do I see? The Ham. The Christmas Ham. I'm hungry, but I've been nibbling at ham with hot mustard, ham with horseradish, ham for days.
Let's see what else is in there - hummmmm, broccoli rabe ( also known as rappini) - wonderful!
Hummmm, what to make? I discover a forgotten frozen pie crust, and decide to go for quiche - I LOVE quiche, and it's great for lunch or dinner the next day.
Ham and Broccoli Rabe Quiche
1 cup heavy or whipping cream
1/3 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
pinch hot pepper flakes ( optional)
Mix together the above ingredients.
Take leftover ham, and carefully shave off a cup or so of ham pieces.
Chop up about a cup of broccoli rabe and simmer briefly in a pot. Add ham and cook, again briefly, to bring ham up to a warm temperature. Drain and add to egg mixture.
Add 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese, and mix again.
Place in frozen or par-baked pie crust, and place in 350' oven for about 35 minutes.
Done! And beautiful and delicious it is!
